public investments. our good schools, our universities. medicare, security. and that in the united states when those two have met, when individual initiative has met with a common sacrifice and investment by the nation, that's what's created upward mobility. and the ability to reach the american dream in our society that makes america unique. and i put before the nation the clear choice that we have in this election between a leader in barack obama who will -- who has been doing that, making those investments and will in the future and another leader who would scale back from those investments and therefore i think hinder america's ability to be the land of opportunity going forward for everyone. >> where did you come up with that line of the night? i think it was the best line so far in this convention where you said mitt romney said just ask your old man for money when you want to start a business. you said why didn't i think of that? where did you come up with that great sarcasm? >> what i wanted to do was be optimistic but point out the differences. as the first lady pointed out very

of the united states. it is a job that brings with it a lot of speaking responsibilities and oh, my god, could you see that tonight. first lady tonight, a long, personal, emotionally, frankly excellent speech from michelle obama. chris matthews? >> certainly made the connection, don't you think? i mean, so much of tonight was interactive. it was between her and that audience in the room. i thought the camera work was so important watching this on television. you saw on the faces of men and women, black and white, all different backgrounds, the connection. she was with people. the emotional connection, telling the story of her love affair with her husband. with her life of getting ahead. but there was one big difference than four years ago which just came through in the earlier speeches tonight. it was hope and change, yes, hope and change but not hope and change imaginally overnight. but hope through work and patience and time and effort and then change. i think it was a much more mature look at their own lives as they got there. i'll tell you, i assume most americans watching tonight who have

of the united states ever handed a bigger financial crisis over to the guy that followed him than george bush did? >> well, if you look at -- >> yes or no. >> yeah, sure. >> who? >> herbert hoover. herbert hoover. >> well, herbert hoover took all the same policies, i mean, fdr didn't do anything that herbert hoover didn't do. higher taxes, more spending, more regulations, and it didn't work for hoover -- >> are you saying that fdr was the same as herbert hoover? >> well, he did hoover took tax rates up to 75% from 25%, fdr took them up towards 90%. he did massive spending, did all that regulation of the farm industry. nothing particularly new, just a little bit more and of course, it didn't work -- >> but grover, grover, interesting parallel. an interesting parallel. >> that's remarkable. >> wait, wait, wait. unless my memory's wrong, fdr was the only other president in certainly modern history who ever got re-elected with unemployment over 8% because the people believed that he had the right vision going forward to turn things around. isn't that a very similar position to what we're now seei

had the look of a shotgun marriage. is that any reason to make some guy president of the united states? is it. there's a reason obama got a bounce and romney did a thud. one guy people really love in charlotte giving the speeches of their lives, bill and michelle and deval patrick and castro. remember what romney got? chris christie up there giving testimonials to themselves. they barely got around to paying for their supper they were so full of themselves. romney has had two chippies, going over to get acquainted with the brits and going to tampa to get the kudos. in both cases he ended up laying more eggs than the easter bunny but people like the easter bunny. joining me is howard fineman and jim vandehei. it seems to me what happened the last two weeks was patently obvious. within convention worked, one didn't. one was sweet, one was sour. one you felt the vibes of happiness. the other one was you felt something but it was usually hatred of the president. >> yeah. well, chris, i spent every evening on the floor of the convention at both conventions, and at the republican convention

one best seller in the united states. this is a topic a lot people are very curious about. so what extra pressure does that put on the u.s. government, mark? >> well, tremendous. now, if anyone remembers back to the pentagon papers case 40 years ago and the thought of could the government stop publication of the book? the legal standard is just too high. the fact is is the book's been out. and obviously media has copies of it. so it would be too difficult to put the genie back in the bottle. the publisher has ratcheted this up. not only increased the print run but expedited the publication date from the 11th to the 4th. so practically speaking there's not even any time for the government to do anything. >> some people might say this is disgusting. you come back, all these other guys are on your team and they don't do this and you want to get rich and you go and put a pseudonym and write the book. other people say no, what's wrong with what he did, after all, the president gave details of what happened in the raid. it's his version where they said bin laden was reaching for a gun an
